05/27/2006 Entry: "Amy's MI-5, one day late"

This is mi-5 can have long answers or one or two word answers..it is up to you

1. What was the last song you listened to?
Just before I got out of the car I heard a live version of something by South Side Johnny and the Asbury Dukes. To be honest, though, I don't know what it was. The last song I remember hearing before that was, believe it or not Amy, "Black Betty" by Ram Jam.

2. What was the last show you watched on television?
This Old House Classics. I finished the last few minutes of an episode before work this morning.

3. What was the last book you read?
The last book I finished was "An Unfortunate Woman" by Richard Brautigan. I'm currently reading "Treasure Island" and "The Raggamuffin Gospel" (which Gina lent me).

4. What was the last concert you went to?
ZZ Top with Paddy and Jimmy T. I think.

5. What was the last job you had?
Before this I worked for Wal-Mart. I started off stocking shelves. I then managed the P/R department, then became their P/R director. Towards then end, they got this new manager who didn't want a P/R person. He said to me, honest he said this to my face: "If you're not stocking a shelf or running a cash register, I don't need you." So under that tutelage, I moved over to the pharmacy. The pharmacy is a different division in Wal-Mart land. Employees in the pharmacy report to the Pharmacist, not the store manager. I was a pharmacy tech for about two years. I was good at it, too. The pharmacists keep trying to convince me to go to pharmacy school. Since my English credits wouldn't really transfer over, and since I didn't really want another degree, I just kept doing my thing until the P/R position opened at Midcoast.com. I will say, though, that I do miss pharmacy work sometimes.

Replies: 2 people have rocked the mic!

Lest we not forget you were also the hardware dept manager.

Oh, right. I messed up a line. It should read:

"I then managed the hardware department, then became their P/R director."
